No special atmosphere here. the staff also totally without interest in you and in service. We took a pint and left quickly again. there are so many nice pubs in London so we found quickly another one.

During non-peak times, you can expect to wait an ungodly amount of time to be served by the lacklustre staff here, and if you do, don't expect what you order to be A) what you ordered, or B) the price presented. I've frequently seen and...More

Went to the Crown for a quick drink. Poor quality of cider and beer tasting of. Staff was polite, but would not go back. On the plus side there was a nice beer garden on in the back.More

Description
The Crown is a grand old pub on Blackfriars rd. With stripped back flooring and simple decor, its a classic english pub without the stuffiness. A great range of imported and local beers can be found here. with an emphasis on serving nothing from the "generic" beer companies.the food range is based around American style burgers with everything from a classic Route 66 beef , through to a Tombstone stacker!something for everyone is served in an informal and relaxed manner.The Crown is one of the only pubs in the area with an off-road garden, great for lazing away an afternoon or evening, its sun drenched all summer long!the pub is big enough for functions of up to 150 persons and these can be booked on any night except fridays!
